4/5 100% The 400 Blows (Les Quatre cents coups) (1959) Truffaut's ode to his childhood is an engrossing watch that is alluring in its simplicity and brilliant in its direction.

3/5 87% 28 Days Later (2003) A very frustrating watch as 28 Days Later... could have been a great film and the first half is just that. It is a shame about the rest. ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

4/5 96% The Verdict (1982) When a movie contains names as Paul Newman, David Mamet and Sidney Lumet, it is hard not to have high hopes.

3/5 43% The Brave One (2007) The Brave One can at times be a brutal, violent and harrowing portrait of an over burdened system, where thugs rule the streets and the corrupt contaminate the upper echelon of society. It is also an un-original revenge/vigilante story.‐ Matt's Movie Reviews

3/5 90% Zombieland (2009) Zombieland is nowhere near the classic it has been labelled, and is more a film that will be encrusted in this time and place. Give it a few years, and it will seem as relevant as the latest game console. ‐ Matt's Movie Reviews
